The charming colonial city of Cartagena - perched on Colombia’s Caribbean coast - is bursting at the seams with quaint cobblestone streets, amazing architecture and cool bars and cafes. A UNESCO World Heritage site since 1984, the city invites you to take a trip back in time as you admire the colourful facades of the 16th and 17th century buildings and enjoy a rose-gold sunset from the city’s ancient ramparts.
During your Cartagena holidays, explore on foot or live like a local as you hop on the back of a brightly coloured 'chiva' (traditional bus) and visit some of the city’s most famous spots including the Inquisition Palace - which currently serves as a museum showcasing historical artefacts - the iconic Torre del Reloj (Clock Tower) and canary-yellow Plaza de los Coches. With warm temperatures and a cooling sea breeze, Cartagena is wonderful to visit all year round meaning you can enjoy this warm and lively city no matter the season.

We have been really happy with your team and you would be my first choice another time. You were great at adapting the itinerary and trying to satisfy exactly what we needed. I also found the in-country concierges really helpful, as well as the app (especially the maps).
